Wireless DMX network

Post by lostcowboyrob »

Please help. I am building a pc based lighting controller for a club I work for. Using Freestyler, ArtNet to DMX interface, Linksys router, DMX signal amplifier and of course LED lights and dimmer packs. The ArtNet interface has a IP address of and sub net of
I was able to make all devices worked WIRED to my computer but I cannot make them work using the router.
When using router, As per instructions with the ArtNet interface, I reconfigured the network & internet setting to the above IP and sub net. It will work (THE FIRST TIME) when I open freestyler but stops after that.
EXAMPLE...Everything set up. freestyler open...RGBW fixture number 1 set to full red, COMES ON. LED light number 2 set to full blue. COMES ON. Back to light number 1 ADD WHITE...NOTHING. Light 2 add green. NOTHING. Unplug interface power, plug back in... Light 1 White is added to red, light 2 green is added to blue, but nothing else will change on either light unless I once again unplug power and plug back in. DOESN"T SEEM TO BE TALKING PROPERLY TO EACH OTHER
Any ideas are appreciated

Artnet doesn't work over wifi as most home routers block multicast traffic over wifi.

I think in freestyler if you enter the IP address of your artnet adapter into the broadcast address Freestyler will send unicast packets which will work over wifi.
